The difference is clear.

With 3D printing, you can just do more.

Prodways has long partnered with top dental labs worldwide, pushing the boundaries of clarity in aligners. Using ProMaker L- series printers and the groundbreaking Absolute Aligner dental resin, a Prodways solution gets you high throughput, outstanding accuracy and ultra transparency.

Technology to meet unique demands

Custom aligners are thermoformed from 3D printed master models. Manufacturers need to deliver a high level of quality and customization, usually with quick turnaround. Keeping patients and their dentists happy while remaining profitable takes three things: A printer with high throughput, the ability to print at high resolution, and consistent performance day after day, week after week.

Dental applications are Prodways’ specialty.

  • Fast production. MOVINGLight® printers can produce as many as 55 dental models in an hour, with no consumables and no need for printing supports.
  • High resolution. MOVINGLight® technology was developed to bring incredible detail to DLP printing. With resolutions as fine as 40 microns per pixel, their precision is ideal for dental lab use.
  • Consistent performance. Prodways machines are work machines: Simple to use and easy to rely on for great results every day, independent of operator skill.
  • Large build plate. Allows labs to print more models at one time.
